Last week, we learned that the next Zombies map in the Black Ops 4 season of content, Ancient Evil, would be arriving on Tuesday, March 26, 2019. Now, we know that we are getting much more than that on that day, as Treyarch has revealed a slew of features that’ll be arriving across all modes when that update goes live.
First and foremost, three new items will be making its way into Blackout: Zero’s EMP grenade and Outrider’s Sparrow bow from Multiplayer, as well as a brand new melee weapon called the Home Wrecker. Everything operates as you would expect here: the EMP Grenade will short out electronics for a short amount of time, the Sparrow bow will be a special weapon found in Supply Drops, and Home Wrecker is a glorified one hit kill. In addition, there will also be new modes coming to Blackout in the near future, obviously.
On the Multiplayer side of things, Barebones is finally making its way to the mode. In it, players won’t be able to use popular “modern” Call of Duty items like specialist abilities and gear, and will instead use a more traditional approach. In addition, a new desert version of Arsenal (creatively named Arsenal Sandstorm) will be hitting the game soon, although this wasn’t confirmed for tomorrow’s update.
The game’s March 26, 2019, update should go live around 1:00 PM EST tomorrow exclusively on PS4. Of course, Xbox One and PC players should be getting an update as well, but it won’t include any of the new items.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
